Brussels Sprout and Bacon Pizza
Brussels Sprout and Bacon Pizza is a match made in heaven and a FOUR INGREDIENT recipe! A white pie with seared brussels sprouts, crunchy bacon, and mozzarella cheese baked on a cast iron pizza pan until bubbly with a whole wheat crust. YUM.
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
- 1 prepared whole wheat pizza dough/crust
- 4 slices bacon
- 8 oz. brussels sprouts washed, trimmed, and halved or quartered
- 8 oz. mozzarella cheese shredded
- salt and pepper
- olive oil
Let pizza dough come to room temperature.
Place cast iron pizza pan
(or baking stone/sheet) in oven and preheat to 500 degrees F.
In a cast iron or other heavy skillet, cook bacon over medium high heat until crispy. Remove and place on paper towels to drain. Chop roughly when cooled.
Add brussels sprouts and salt and pepper to the skillet (in the bacon grease) and cook over medium-high heat until seared and tender (about 5-7 minutes).
Meanwhile, roll out pizza dough and place on a floured pizza paddle. Drizzle top of crust with olive oil. Remove pizza pan or stone from the oven and place the crust (carefully!) on top.
Mix together 1/2 of the mozzarella, chopped bacon, and cooked brussels sprouts in a small bowl. Spread on top of crust. Top with remaining mozzarella.
Place pizza back in oven and cook for another 7-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and beginning to brown.
Slice and serve!
